Become a better financial you with the Chip app + a free £10! (AD)

One of the things I did in 2019, that really helped me with my family finances, was to start auto-saving. Stashing a little money aside meant that when we got our new house we already had some money that we could use for unexpected expenses that cropped up. We had already budgeted for things such as moving costs, but we hadn’t budgeted for things like new furniture to replace items that were damaged when we moved house. Today, I want to talk to you about the Chip app, and how you can use their free app to help you put a little money away in 2020. Alternatively, if you just want to get started you can *sign up to the Chip app now! Read on to find out more about a £10 bonus I have to share with you!
